Geography

These domed rock formations are composed of clusters, sedimentary consisting of cobbles and rocks of various rock types including granite and basalt, cement by sandstone matrix. Cracks Are Due To Erosion, Mainly By Water. Although it is dry region, great area of these domes collects lot of rainwater, which runs out into steep waterfalls during rain. From geological point of view, analysis of Uluru-Kata Tjuta and Watarrka National Parks reveal inspiring story. 500 million years ago, whole area was covered by inland sea and for many centuries, sand and mud fell to bottom of sea, creating rock and sandstone. Kata Tjuta Domes Are Eroded Remains Of Sedimentary Rock Of Seafloor, While Uluru Is Reliction Of Thick Grain, Mineral-rich Sandstone Called Arkose.
